we booked the sunday before we arrived on the saturday ,i telephoned to ask a couple of questions and andrea was right in there to say would we book direct with the guest house instead of booking with booking.com i said i would and telephoned her later to book and paid the deposit i asked her how much and she said the same as booking. com i can see now because we stayed for 2 nights which was 98 pound for a twin or doublbe and my daughter paid 88 pound for a small double and i can see someone the same weekend only paid 45 pound for 1 night tis is not fair .the draw space in room 8 was none exsistant very mean with lights on the hallway corridor and on the sunday evening the heating did not come on and @ 5-45 we had to ask for the heating on she made some excuse about it coming on with the weather anyway within 5 mins of asking it come on
there is no power to the showers either in room 8 or 9 and it is freezing in the bathrooms no heated towel rail or radiator
the breakfast was ok but no taste to the bacon and this guest house has no idea of making toast they either want to get a new toaster orbrown it a bit more
when we rang the door bell to book in andrea came to the door and was welcoming THEN her daughter came through and was very rude even for 8 years old she was talikn to her mum doing hand stands in front of us and generally messing about inbetween us it is a business not a playground
i do think they are greedy people askingf for the money as soon as you get through the door when you have paid a deposit and the general feeling we got was we come first the guests come second i would not stay again incidentally there was a hand written note on the sitting room door saying sorry closed we were not told this on booking as we would have liked to have sat in there as there were 4 of us and it was not been decorated because she said they were doing that @ the end of the season.
